TEACHING SCORES

 

Deakin University SETU and eVALUate Scores

(i.e., end of trimester University-driven student satisfaction scores and a selection of quotes from students)

 

2018 (T3) MPM773 Contemporary Issues in Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (6 of 19 students, 31.6% response rate)

  • "Highly effective, his approach of experiential learning is brilliant as it engages you and draws you in to a level of understanding more quickly and enjoyably, that you become highly motivated to participate and excel. His depth of experience, relaxed and strong approach, underpinned by his extensive experience on the topic makes Jon one of the stand out lecturers that i have had, and to date all my lecturers have been very good. His ability to push boundaries but never make any-one feel uncomfortable is also a stand out skill. Authentic, open and honest. A class act, a credit to Deakin"
  • "Jon was able to practically enable me to learn and implement persuasion and argument structure that can be used in real life. The teaching method is exceptional and I wish more units would have more Learning goals like this one."
  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jon during this unit, only wish that we had more time.  His teaching style really made you think and research yourself instead of being death by power point.  He challenged but in a safe environment and actually gave me back some confidence by doing it this way.  I have already taken some of the teachings and used them in the work place, which has proven very successful.  Was nice to finish up my MBA journey on this subject and with Jon, sad that I didn't have any other subjects with him."

 

2017 (T3) MPM775 Personal Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (3 of 7 students, 42.9% response rate)

  • "Jon is an exceptional postgrad teacher, who strives to guide the self-learning of students.  His style is creative and challenging."
  • "I have to say, it a great unit thus it improves my academic ability as well as learned digital literacy.  In the digital age, digital literacy is a useful tool for my work and even social life. Meanwhile, making a documentary to show understanding of leadership and improvement of my leadership ability, it's just amazing idea. Hence, it allows me improving my competence of leadership and digital skill in the digital age."

 

2017 (T1) MPM772 An Act of Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (3 of 4 students, 75.0% response rate)

  • "Jon is [the] best lecturer; he shows the value of leadership itself by his teaching."
  • "Jon is amazing - the best educator so far during my MBA studies. Excellent unit."

 

2016 (T3) Contemporary Issues in Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (2 of xx students, xx.x% response rate)

  • "The experiential nature of this unit provides so much more than can be learnt from either lectures or books alone. Some elements/techniques were new, many were not. How to put all the elements together, when, how to use and practice them, be provided feedback & constructive critique was the most valuable. You can not attain this from books/lectures without the necessary practicing to gain experience."

 

2016 (T2) MPM775 Personal Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (2 of 5 students, 40.0% response rate)

  • "Jon is always approachable and delivers an excellent mode of teaching that is both academic and practical. The Master of Leadership program is THE reason I came to Deakin and Jon's management of this program and his teaching have not disappointed. I believe this program is going to be a key qualification needed to address the lack of effective leadership across corporate Australia currently. The experiential learning mode and the requirement for self reflection and awareness are a key contributor to being able to integrate the learning into everyday leadership issues."

 

2016 (T2) MPM772 An Act of Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (7 of 9 students, 77.8% response rate)

  • "It was a very positive experience having the opportunity to study with Jon.  The process not only deepened my understanding of leadership and my own capabilities"
  • "Excellent.  Very approachable and able to convey messages in a way that not only do you learn, but you also know that you have learnt something."
  • "Jon did a really good job. Down to earth approach and was engaging."
  • "Jon is passionate about the topic of leadership in general and about the importance of experiential learning for students to explore leadership in their context. He conveyed the theory clearly - particularly the elements about social construction of leadership and about the importance of visual perception in evaluating leadership and leaders. His use of the movie-making assignments is consistent with the topic, experiential learning and the theory elements. He is available to students throughout the learning experience and seeks to ensure all students maximise learning outcomes and experiences."

 

2016 (T2) MPR771 Principles of Leadership residential school eVALUate: 83% (6 of 19 students, 31.6% response rate)

  • "Nothing to say.... except please continue to offer these innovative programs Deakin University (and Jon)...  learning through creation is such a powerful tool, and Jon does it so well."
  • "Jon provided a fantastic amount of support, and the group discussions were extremely relevant and a great way to understand the coursework. I really enjoyed the way he steered the conversations, and the method of assessment through video is both original, whilst forcing a student to think and apply the theories learned."
  • "Excellent teacher. Organised, Challenging & insightful"

 

2016 (T1) MPR771 Principles of Leadership residential school eVALUate: 100% (10 of 19 students, 52.6% response rate)

  • "Extremely engaging residential unit, well taught and structured in a manner that thoroughly engaged the students."
  • "I truly enjoyed the use of film, it was a fantastic learning experience for which I benefited on and enjoyed the approach. I also enjoyed the way in which groups were put together as it required people to go outside of their comfort zones / groups and mix with other students for an increased learning experience. This was my most enjoyable MBA subject, one which I have taken the most away and left me with wanting to learn more, fantastic experiential learning."
  • "Jon is amazing. Love his enthusiasm, candour, humour and thoughtfulness. Susan is lovely - puts so much effort into assessment and feedback. They are a great team."

 

2015 (T3) MPM772 An Act of Leadership (prev. The Social Construction of Leadership) intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (4 of 15 students, 26.7% response rate)

  • "Jon is a genius, he has combined the right amount of theory with the practical. This unit had a profound effect on the way I think about Leadership and what I will put into practice to help me and the people around me be better. Jon goes beyond the effort, puts enormous hours in and does what it takes to get a great outcome for the student. I have recommended this unit to people at Deakin, as well as others in Local Government contemplating additional study after their MBA. Deakin can really differentiate themselves, also this has huge commercial potential for the Corporate sector."
  • "This is one of the most powerful units I have had. Through the practice (making a video) I learnt about leadership, filming and team work. It was an amazing experience."

 

2015 (T1) MPR771 Principles of Leadership residential school eVALUate: 100% (10 of 16 students, 62.5% response rate)

  • "I enjoyed the video format and appreciated the creativity and guidance on techniques of video production. I found that the discussion and review of the videos provided a richness to the conversation and theory related to leadership."
  • "Living the leadership lessons that were taught through working as a team in the movie assessments were a fantastic way to both demonstrate understanding through how we worked together as well as the final output was an interesting and effective method to teach the syllabus. By building self-awareness of your own leadership style and how this interacts with leadership styles of others was invaluable."

 

2014 (T2) MPM772 The Social Construction of Leadership intensive unit eVALUate: 100% (3 of 12 students, 25.0% response rate)

  • "Fantastic unit. Jon Billsberry is a superior teacher at Deakin. The ability to focus and hone in on a task of writing a screenplay, filming it and producing it in just one week seemed to be overwhelming at first but it was amazing what you could do with that single-minded focus. The theory around the unit is very thought provoking also. Andrea was a good assistant."
  • "I really enjoyed the dynamic in this unit and found that it took me away from my comfort zone and forced me to draw on my creativity. The through the lens approach really encapsulated the subject in an effective way and I hope my work reflects this. The real bonus was to experience working with film making equipment and editing programs, which I have now incorporated into my current role to connect with stakeholders. This experiential approach to learning was full of many useful insights and made it very enjoyable."
  • "Jon introduced a controversial theory in this unit and it generated a lot of thought and discussion amongst students."

 

2014 (T1) MPR771 Principles of Leadership residential school SETU: 4.80/5.00 (10 of 16 students, 62.5% response rate)

  • "Jon was outstanding, he challenges us whilst at the same time was very encouraging and supportive. He clearly is passionate about the topic which came through in his teachings."
  • "This Unit was exceptionally well delivered. Jon uses a plethora of means to engage with (and excite) the students and impart his wide knowledge of the subject. He adopts a very informal and relaxed atmosphere which I found conducive to learning."
  • "Jon is a passionate teacher with an enticing learning style.  The more you get the more you want to learn and challenge myself.  Jon was always approachable and encouraged students to learn outside students comfort zone.  He showed his willingness to listen to feedback and offer guidance when sought. Thank you for a truly engaging learning experience."
  • "As my first unit of uni for many years Jon made me feel welcome and created a relaxed, open environment for learning. He has a very deep and broad knowledge of Leadership and I really enjoyed the residential."
  • "It was obvious how much thought and effort went into how to teach this unit.  Jon is engaging, inspiring and knew what he was talking about.  His passion for teaching come through in everything he does."

 

2013 (T3) MPR721 Organisational Behaviour residential school SETU: 4.50/5.00 (12 out of 29 students, 41.4% response rate)

  • "Jon is a very engaging lecturer that challenges the way you think and introduces you to other sides of arguments."
  • "I enjoyed Jon's unique teaching style which efficiently and effectively conveyed key concepts. I look forward to attending further unit's taught by Jon."
  • "Jon has a mannerism which I had not experienced before from a lecturer, which i quickly found to to be grounded and real-world. His teaching style was particularly engaging, as was his use of media as a learning device. His knowledge of management and beahvioural concepts was clearly far wider-reaching than just the OB topics we were looking at, and he utilised this knowledge to delve into expert discussion as well as to invoke critical thinking and application of theory. I have since applied Jon's teachings daily in the corporate environment in which I operate. Although I have only known Jon for this short time, I am considering enrolment in more of his units in light of the value I have derived from his teachings. Unfortunately Jon will now become the yard-stick against which I will rate all future lecturers! Thanks for a great unit Jon."

 

2013 (T2) MPM772 The Social Construction of Leadership intensive unit SETU: 4.67/5.00 (9 of 10 students, 90% response rate)

  • "Jon relies on his students being grown-ups. This is most refreshing. I find him clear in his comms and utterly empathic."
  • "Passionate about leadership, approachable."
  • "Outstanding Professor, full of knowledge, insight, innovation and experience."

 

2013 (T1) MPR771 Principles of Leadership residential school SETU: 4.78/5.00 (9 of 16 students, 56.3% response rate)

  • "Jon is both highly knowledgeable about the content and practical in relation to application. Love his passion and enthusiasm!"
  • "Organised, outcome orientated and thoughtful."
  • "Jon's approach to teaching is exciting.  Learning through film and the associations of the film to teach the content of the unit, through to actually producing your own film, ariticulating the theory into a visual method.  I would structure my course around Jon as the unit chair."
  • "This is the second unit I've done with Jon. I find him a good communicator and able to implant the knowledge well. His way of ensuring that everyone is on the same page is most refreshing. I really enjoy this experiential way of learning."

 

2012 (T3) MPR721 Organisational Behaviour residential school SETU: 4.92/5.00 (13 of 36 students, 36.1% response rate)

  • "Charismatic lecturer who was able to clearly communicate the theory and engage students in thought provoking discussion."
  • "Jon has successfully crafted this subject in such a way that students learn as much about themselves as about the subject of organisational behaviour. The topics that Jon covered have many practical applications in the world of work and in every day life. I can honestly say that I think differently about motivation and leadership as a result of this course. I have recommended it to everyone!"
  • "Awesome.  Delivery, content, knowledge of the topic was fantastic.  The engagement he managed to pull from the group was outstanding."
  • "A very memorable and life changing experience, Thank you John this unit has taught me so much and have applied some of the learnings to both my professional and personal life."
  • "I've never been more inspired or challenged than in the time I spent with Jon on this residential. Superb way of engaging and extracting. Much, much appreciated."

 

2011 (T2) MPR721 Organisational Behaviour residential school SETU: 4.95/5.00 (19 of 45 students, 42.2% response rate)

  • "I thought the teaching was brilliant.  A great course which challenged in a unique manner - wish there were more teachers like Jon."
  • "Probably the most motivating, effective and inspiring education and learning I have undertaken as an adult. Great group, great course and an outstanding leader in Jon. I am normally hard to please with very high standards and I was not bored once. I never felt I was wasting my time. Simply brilliant."
  • "Jon is fantastic - provocative, inspirational and a world leader in the field. It was a privilege to learn from such a dynamic educator and academic."
  • "A great teacher, who speaks clearly and controls the students well. Separating into new groups for each task was brilliant."
